This will be a FREE 8 hour introduction to basketball coaching course called the ACTIVATORS AWARD, and is taking place TWICE, both here at BYC and at the Manor Road Gym in Whitehawk, to give as many people as possible the opportunity.

This is a UNIQUE opportunity to gain an award for free, gain invaluable leadership experience as well as including numerous incentives such as –

    • Official England Basketball recognised award.
    • Free official basketballSUSSEX t-shirt.
    • Free resources pack.
    • Free basketball shoes! (upon successful completion of the programme including the leadership element)
    • The chance to be taught by some of the best coaches in the South East.
    • One candidate will also be selected to participate in a free Official UKCC Level 1 Coaching qualification (worth £165).

Candidates will be required to prove their leadership skills by leading short sessions to a small group of younger participants while supervised by qualified tutors. These will take place during a further 8 hours of practical delivery, which will be discussed during the course and confirmed at a later date. 4 hours of this have already been set for the Manor Road course.
